OK .. about me,
I joined DA back in 2011 after a long absence from the art world. I decided to explore the humble graphite pencil and the human portrait. I gave myself 5yrs to do this and this year 2014 is my 4th year. The one thing i have learned so far is that 5yrs is nowhere near enough time.
I studied and worked as a illustrator back in the day and my drawings do tend to take on an illustrative style at times but I quite like that as I'm not trying to achieve photo realism and i believe in letting a style develop naturally. Most are straight forward copies because they are only drawn so i can experiment with ideas or techniques. Some will be motivated by tones alone and others by textures. I love reflected light and dramatic lighting also .. I draw on smooth Bristol paper and Bristol Velum with a more textured surface, i find that moving from one to the other presents different challenges which i enjoy ... i draw to learn.
I also believe in sharing and so i will add the occasional walkthrough to share what i have learned. I have also added many old illustrations to my gallery for any who want to see them.

Thank you in advance for any faves, i do not have the time to answer each one personally but i do answer all comments and enjoy hearing from you all and visiting new watchers galleries.

I do consider commissioned work, if you are interested feel free to visit my website for all details.
Have a great 2014 and thank you for visiting my page .... enjoy your art :D
